...I did not struggle with weight growing up, but after getting married and having five kids, I had moved solidly into the "overweight" population. In 2006 I was able to lose the extra pounds (50 of them) and get to goal. But staying there, that is another story. Slow but steady, the weight has crept back on over the years. So here we go again ...

NSV ... Too Big
When I first saw the acronym NSV I had no idea what it meant. A quick Google search got me the answer and I've seen it around a ton since then (for a quick cheat sheet of fitness acronyms see my Say What? post). Now I have to admit ... I am VERY centered on the scale. I'd seen a Non-Scale Victory Link Up posted on one of the blogs I follow (KJ Weighing In) and I really wanted to participate, but week after week, I just didn't feel I really had anything to share.
Well, I'm happy to announce my first official NSV.
Last winter wasn't great. As the warmer weather rolled around I pulled out my shorts and capris ... and nothing fit. I was so frustrated. How had I let it get to this point? It was the wakeup call I needed I think, and I was determined to get back down. I had too many cute clothes in smaller sizes. Until then however, I needed something to wear. I stopped at the local thrift store and was able to find quite a few cute capris for cheap. Today... pretty much everything is too big. Baggy. Even falling down! I've pulled out the things that didn't fit in the Spring, and they fit now. I also had to adjust the strap on my HRM ... it was too loose.
So ... I've been able to officially participate in the NSV link up.
I do still have some smaller clothes I've saved.
I'd love the ones that fit now to be baggy!
What do you do with clothes that you have outgrown?
